This is a great soup...very inexpensive to make too. It is much easier to eat with the croutons instead of the bread. You can use more croutons if you want.

I really enjoyed the soup I found out the hard way was that I gave away my onion soup Bowls so I put it in foil tins. Hey it worked. Made for ZWT5 for Cooks with Dirty Faces. Can this be frozen at all. I would love to make up a bunch and freeze them.

Quick and simple! I deglazed the pan with apple cider vinegar before adding the broth. I cubed 3 slices of frozen bread, threw them in the toaster oven for a few minutes, poured melted butter on them, then topped with shredded swiss and toasted again- made a great topping! For ZWT4 Flying Duchess'

We had this as part of dinner last night. Easy to prepare & great results. French onion soup (except for packet mix, which we use for making dip), so it was great to have this again. Will definitely make this again.
